This school had the best years of my life! The staff and students are awesome and welcoming!There are many activities for students to get involved in. The teachers are really there for their students! Parents and students i recommend this school!
My son & daughter both attended Davidson, both loved it! The teachers are awesome, they really care about their students! The staff is good, too, but the students are the best! We ran a stuffed animal/teddy bear drive this year, & my daughter asked the students to bring-in donations for the 52 terminally ill children @ Sacred Heart in Pensacola, within 5 school days, the teachers/staff/students had brought-in/donated over 200 new teddies! After we picked-them-up, we witnessed several more students putting together boxes of food to feed the less fortunate in our area for Christmas...simply amazing! :)
Its a good school and Ive had such a fun time here. The only thing is that some of the people that work in the office a really grumpy and disrespectful. Also during lunch I only have five minutes to eat sometimes, and the teachers running the lunch consantly yell at kids, even when they are not doing aything!
I love Davidson. Im about to enter my eighth grade year and just have to say that the school is amazing. The teachers are great, the students stay out of trouble (well, as much as you can expect), and its just all around a very nice school.
When I first moved to Florida, I had to go to Lewis Middle School. I soon then had to move to Crestview and attend Davidson. When it was my first day, I just fell in love with that school! Everything is so organized and clean and everyone is so kind and respectful! It's a very great school to attend.
This is my first year at Davidson. I had recently moved school systems, and I was overwelmed with worries such as what the teachers and students would be like there. After my first day, however, all of those worries drifted away. Everything there is great, the students, the teachers, everything.
My daughter attended Davidson in 6th & 7th grade and has loved every minute of it. The school is very encouraging to kids and has great teachers. There is good communication with teachers if you want it and some will send lesson plans weekly if you sign up. Of course the continuous access to on line grades which are always up to date is great. Several classes offer after school tuition if you wish to attend. The music dept is great, many extracurricular activities offered and after school instrument tuition is offered. Band director is wonderful. This school has completely boosted my daughters self confidence and helped her to develop into a well rounded student. My only regret is having to leave before she attended 8th grade. Keep up the great work Davidson.
i love davidson ihave been going there 6th-8th and im in my 8th grade year now i love it! i cant wait till high school but i will miss davidson so much i love most the teachers there but some i dont like, but youll get that at every school!
I was impressed with the school at first look. I think most of the teachers are wonderful. Simple solutions seem to be overlooked.
I think that this is a great school! I have been going to this school for 1 1/2 years and I have already learned so much. Please keep this school running, because I really don't want to go to Richbourg.
I loved being at Davidson, it was a great experience. Although I moved before being able to finish my 8th grade year I was there since 6th grade. The teachers are wonderful, the principle was very understanding, and the students were very nice! I wish I could've finished my schooling there, I miss everybody! Davidsom is an A+ school and hopefully it will remain that way for years to come. And maybe Mr. Holstead wont have to deal with too many 'huligans' as much as he did when I was there. Good luck!
Outstanding teachers - highly dedicated. Willing to do what it takes to help a kid learn.
An outstanding school! Teachers genuinely care and are willing to do what it takes to help students. Students not beaten to death with FCAT prep and threats/warnings about FCAT failure. Only drawback is discipline - sporadic, not equally applied.
Quality academic programs; a lot of activities for students to be involved in; great parent involvement and support
The majority of my child's teachers were very warm and nurturing. Unfortunatly for the good teachers people tend to only speak out about the bad teachers. In three years, my child had one or two teachers who missed their calling, but the rest of them were great. The only complaint my daughter had was the rules that were not enforced.
My child went to Davidson for 6th - 8th grade and had a wonderful learning experience there. The teachers were caring and helpful to my child. I would highly recommend the school to any child or parent.
My child needed additional assistance on FCAT Math. He was assigned to stay after school on a certain day of the week. The first week, he sat outside the door of the specified room the whole hour until his grandmother came to pick him up. No one questioned why he was there. When I went in the next morning and asked about it, I was told the day had been changed to another day. The next week, he went to the specified room on the that day. His name was not on 'the list' so he was sent to a detention classroom for the duration of his time on that day. Needless to say, I prepared for FCAT after work each day-not the faculty at Davidson. I did not see any individualized attention in any way except for his math teacher, who announced to his class that they scored so low on last year's FCAT, they were likely to fail this year. She beat them over the head with this a few times during the year. It helped to keep their confidence levels high! Even though I attempted to build him up, nothing I could say could make him forget the hurtful words of his teacher.
